Can’t go wrong with a Pista or a Ford GT. Did you order the Pista?

If you can afford the real deal, why bother with the cheap imitation? I wouldnt wait for a C8 fir ahit if I could afford a Pista, lol.

Let's be real. It's been second fiddle to Viper since the C4. The Corvette is a great car, but if you can afford a Pista, a Corvette is just a throw away toy in comparison.

With the choice to imitate the European cars, a midengine vette wont even be able to consider itself it's a ripoff of Italian cars like the Pista, but on a way shittier level. If I had say, F12 money, a front engine corvette wouldnt even be a thought in my mind. It just can't compete.

You do realize you're bashing the merits of a mass produced GM car vs. a $400k Italian exotic, right?

Congrats on your beautiful Pista, looking forward to hearing your comparisons to this vs the C8 and your other midengine cars (are those both Ford GTs next to your Pista??)!
